Chula Vista shares plan to curb childhood obesity

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - Chula Vista is taking on the childhood obesity epidemic with a proactive plan aimed at forging healthy habits.

The Chula Vista School District is releasing a tool kit to be used by other schools.

The guide is called "The Body Mass Index Surveillance Kit." It's a health and wellness program that has lead to a 3.2 percent decline in student obesity in just two years from 2010 to 2012.

In April, the county named the Chula Vista School District their first "Live Well San Diego" district. "Live Well San Diego" is the county's ongoing initiative to improve the health and safety of residents, and was launched by the Board of Supervisors in 2010.
